Galaxy S with Froyo

Remember how a leaked Froyo ROM was promised for the Galaxy S? Well, it's out, it's working (mostly) and Italian site HDblog has been giving it the what-for on camera. A reminder that this is for the international version of the Galaxy S and won't (yet) work with your Samsung Captivate or Vibrant, but hopefully we'll see that change soon. Check out the hands-on video after the break.

Galaxy S Froyo ROM alive, kicking and handled

Froyo + Galaxy S is going to fly. I can't wait to get the full release. Come on Samsung please get this done before September you are falling behind.

I also want to see linpack scores of the Gaxy S running Froyo. I imagine we should be in the high 40's to low 50's.

People on xda were saying they were only getting 14. Apparently the build isn't fully optimized yet.

I am thinking about getting the vibrant but want to know something. Will these phones get good root support and cyanogen roms?

Yeah actually two devs are working on the Vibrant CM6 RC1 (maybe 2 IDK). Scepterr and Wes Garner I think. I will get you there twitter profiles if you want to follow them. I am willing to bet we will have a stable CM6 Froyo ROM from TeamDouche before Samsung even releases the final Froyo ROM.

Kinda' jealous. The whole card switching thing is genius.
Saves a lot of customization time also.

I hope the EPIC comes with some "jigabytes" lol. I'm just kidding...he speaks quite well for a second language.

Even with the limitations of this ROM, it looks sick!

Looking good. I do love the way you can switch and edit the home screens. Looking forward to seeing a more complete build.

Very likely ... it might even be as super smooth as all the 2.1 Browsers on Android (if not better). He did mention that this ROM had not been optimised during the review.

Damn, do you see how fast the screen switches as he clicks the back button or any button for that matter, also when he swipes the screen...wow.

There doesn't seem to be much of a speed difference from stock 2.1 eclair. I do see some add ons tho like screen orientation lock and that webOS-ey card screen switch thing.
